Alphabet Energy, a leader in thermoelectrics for waste heat to power (WHP) applications, and Heat is Power, the trade association for the WHP industry, have released statistics to help explain the value of utilizing waste heat to generate electricity and reduce emissions.
Compared to Mechanical Chillers, They Can Substantially Reduce Operating Costs
May 4, 2015
Absorption chillers use heat, instead of mechanical energy, to provide cooling. The mechanical vapor compressor is replaced by a thermal compressor that consists of an absorber, a generator, a pump, and a throttling device.
A supercomputer created by Hewlett-Packard (HP) and the U.S Department of Energy’s (DOE’s) National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL) that uses warm water to cool its servers, and then re-uses that water to heat its building, has been honored as one of the top technological innovations of the year by R&D Magazine.
Thermogalvanic Effect Has Potential to Efficiently Turn Low-Grade Heat to Electricity
June 9, 2014
Huge amounts of excess heat are generated by industrial processes and power plants; researchers have long sought ways to harness this wasted energy. Researchers at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) and Stanford University have now found a new alternative for low-temperature waste-heat conversion into electricity.
Cool Energy has announced the successful demonstration of a new system for converting waste heat into electricity. According to the company, this new waste heat recovery technology can significantly boost the efficiency of diesel generators, reducing fossil fuel use by 10 percent.
